CabinBoy8 Posted April 23, 2009 Report Share Posted April 23, 2009 Out of 38,394 registered Kearny voters, only 1,561 actually took the time to vote in the Board of Education election. That is 4% of the total registered voters. All 38,294 registered voters were sent a sample ballot by the County Board of Elections so its not as though those that didn't vote didn't know there was an election. Even more pathetic is that out of those who voted, only 1,299 cast a vote on the Bd. of Ed. budget. That works out to 3.4%. So this means 1,299 registered voters approved a budget of over $47,000.000. The Bd. of Ed. budget is over 47% of the total tax doller in Kearny and despite all of the wailing over tax bills, the reality is that only a tiny percentage of people actually will take the few minutes it takes to go to the polls and vote.
